It is relieved if you leave it like this.

A prototype already operable on notebook PC is completed

After that we have come to a state where you can complete it by porting it to work with Raspberry Pi.

In addition, we plan to make it possible to upload and provide the database also collected by our users independently, and the investment is under acceptance at the following site.
